How Skip Tracing Works

Let me explain how we’re different. We are not just databases. We’re real people. We don’t do “batch” searches. We could – but we don’t. Not our business model. When you finally get serious about finding someone – we’re the ones you want in your corner.

Provide us with the last known information on your subject, and we’ll take it from there. It’s that simple.

A word about databases. Of course we uses databases, but you get what you pay for. Being Licensed Private Investigators, we have access to the “really good stuff.” The databases that you cannot access. We have them all – and pay top dollar for their use. Not the databases you see when you do an internet search for “find people” or “skip trace to collect a debt” or “locate an old friend.” But it doesn’t end there.

As I mentioned above, you get what you pay for. The databases that you see online also buy their information – just like you’re doing when you “sign up” to use their databases. Their cost is determined by how fast they want to receive the information. The faster and more up-to-date they receive the information – the more it costs them. So, just how often are they updating their information? Your guess is as good as mine. There are also other factors.

These data providers buy their information from many different sources. County records, possibly credit headers (the better data providers), phone banks, etc. You get the picture. How many sources do they have? Who Knows? Well, I know exactly where my source information is coming from. I know where my data sources get their information – and I know that they pay a whole lot of money to acquire the latest information – fast.

But that’s not all. We don’t rely on database information being 100% accurate. That’s why we also have MULTIPLE databases. The good ones. The databases we have are very accurate and up-to-date, but they’re not perfect. It’s impossible for them to be, because things change so rapidly. People move. They’re hiding out. They’re living with relatives or friends. How can the average person determine exactly where these people are? That’s where we excel.

The very best Databases are just the starting point. So….

We have phones. Lots of them. Trac phones, burners, unlisted numbers, calling cards – and some stuff I’m not even going to tell you about. Here’s the point: If you can get the right person on the phone – they’ll tell you exactly what you need to know. Do we call people and verify information on every single locate we perform? Of course not. We’ve been doing this for a lot of years and know which procedures and techniques are needed for every locate. Just know that we take whatever measures are needed to find your subject.

So, leave it to us. Don’t worry, it’s all legal. Stealthy, yes – but 100% legal. Leave the skip tracing to us – we’ll get it done.
